SAGRI Training Modules .
The training modules will be based on the findings of WP2 (Analysis of skills needs for agricultural workers) to develop innovative and flexible techniques that respond to specific education needs of agricultural workers. The programme will abide by the European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning (EQF) and the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) standards.
The aim of the SAGRI curriculum is to provide the agricultural workers the skills, knowledge and ability to understand and analyze agroenvironmental systems as natural ecosystems modified by human activity, though with an emphasis on environmental technologies that can be applied to achieve crop sustainable production by means of improved systems’ management. The SAGRI curriculum will integrate the latest advancements of the eco-innovation sector that can be immediately applied by farmers. Moreover, the SAGRI curriculum will be outcome-oriented in order to strengthen the link between the curriculum and work requirements, and will provide an interdisciplinary approach and the necessary basis for the delivery of the training programme (WP4).
The SAGRI curriculum will have a specific character and be designed in terms of tangible learning outcomes for EQF level 5, taking into account the complexity, range and level of learning expected to be achieved by the agricultural workers. It will be broken up into four main sections dedicated to:
1. Referential of activities and tasks,
2. Description of the units of learning outcomes in terms of knowledge, skills and competences,
3. Specification of the number of total learning hours, including classroom hours, hands-on practice, self-study and assessment, and allocate respective ECVET points,
4. A glossary with key-terms will be also developed.
